Nestled against the shores of Falls Lake, the Bayleaf Ridge neighborhood is located on Raleigh’s northern edge. The subdivision is bordered by Six Forks Road to the west and Pleasant Union Church Road to the south. The nearby lake forms the northern and eastern border around portions of Bayleaf Ridge.
The vast majority of Bayleaf Ridge homes were constructed throughout the 1990s, although some construction dates back to the 1980s and continued until the year 2000. The neighborhood offers residents plenty of privacy in a secluded subdivision less than 20 miles from downtown Raleigh.
Commuters will enjoy a convenient commute to the capital city, as well as neighboring cities such as Cary, Chapel Hill, and Knightdale via major Raleigh thoroughfares such as Interstate 540, Interstate 440, and Highway 64. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is located less than 30 miles to the west, and Duke University is a 20-mile drive to nearby Durham via Highway 98, which is 1.5 miles to the north of Bayleaf Ridge.
One of the subdivision’s biggest attractions for outdoor enthusiasts is its proximity to Falls Lake State Recreation Area. Just five miles to the north of the Bayleaf Ridge neighborhood, this popular recreation spot features a 12,000-acre lake for boating, fishing, swimming, and kayaking, as well as over 26,000 acres of woodlands for hiking and mountain biking.
Residents seeking additional outdoor recreation opportunities can take a trip to the North Carolina coast to visit the Outer Banks, a string of barrier islands located 3.5 hours to the east.
